In the centre of the Marmilla region, in the valley of the Mannu river, at the foot of the Giara, there is a special atmosphere: ever since prehistoric times, Barumini was the main centre of a very rich territory, with a population of approximately one thousand 300 inhabitants today. It is one of the most captivating places of culture on the island. At the entrance to the residential area, there is a monumental complex that has made it world famous: Su Nuraxi, the only archaeological site in Sardinia declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site (1997). Not only is it the most impressive (and most well-preserved) of the thirty Nuragic sites, but it is, above all, the most precious inheritance left to us by
the Nuragic civilization. The archaeological excavations took place in the middle of the 20th century by Giovanni Lilliu.
An inimitable spectacle of nature about 60 kilometres from Cagliari, in southern Sardinia: a plateau of volcanic origin, home to horses unique in Europe. An island within an island, a magical place with unique characteristics. The Giara is a basaltic plateau on the border between Marmilla and Sarcidano. It rises abruptly to 550 metres, dominating the flat surrounding landscape, undulated only by ‘soft’, fertile hills. On the summit, twelve kilometres long and slightly sloping, an ecosystem with rare animals and plants is preserved.

In its four historic quarters, it preserves millenary events ranging from pre-history to the rule of the House of Savoy. The Castello district rises on the highest hill, characterised by ancient bastions, now terraces where the nightlife bustles, and picturesque narrow streets lined with noble residences: Palazzo Regio and Palazzo di Città, as well as the cathedral of Santa Maria. Of great charm are the medieval towers at the entrance to the castle, the Elephant and St. Pancrazio towers.
